I'm not able to take new clients at this time. My specialty is working with teen and adult clients in the handling of day-to-day problems. I treat victims of trauma, as well as individuals suffering from anxiety and panic disorder, phobias, depression, and other stress related issues. Terrible events or repeated daily stresses can affect anyone and everyone, making life more difficult. Experiencing or witnessing a frightening, dangerous, or violent event can overwhelm our body’s natural coping abilities. Even more common life events like job/school stress can cause trauma response as well.

Is your child struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, or difficulty expressing emotions safely? Are they having a difficult time coping with a trauma or loss? Maybe you want to strengthen your relationship with your child. Play is the natural way that children express themselves, and they need a special environment filled with toys and games to help them with the hard work of learning new skills and addressing unpleasant memories. Play and art therapy can be used to resolve trauma, teach and practice coping skills, increase emotional regulation, decrease anxiety and enhance attachments.
